Prevention of heat leakage by application of insulation is the simplest method of achieving energy conservation. Some estimates have predicted that insulation in US industry alone saves approximately 200 million barrels of oil every year. The need for efficient thermal insulation has become more important with higher operating temperatures and increasing energy costs. While placing insulation onto a pipe or equipment is fairly easy, resolving issue such as what type of insulation to use and how much requires understanding of various alternatives. This 4-hour online course discusses the design considerations for thermal insulation and is aimed at students, professional engineers, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel and loss prevention engineers. This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
